    I am trying to find information regarding my father Stanislaw Bogdanowicz, who served with the French Army and transferred to the Polish paratroopers in Scotland ’39 or ’40. He was stationed in Fife. I had his Parachute badge (diving eagle) but I have none of his medals as he died in 1967.

    Cheers,

    Noel Bogdan

      Hello Jason,
      In short, no. This is a rare and sought after book now out of print. You could try Abe Books – there’s a copy there for $178.40!! How much do you want the book? I got a copy on an inter-library loan. Indeed, that is how I get most of my books for research. A good local library will be able to track one down on WorldCat. Try also the Sikorski Museum.
      Good luck,
      Nick
